Pacific Shaving Oil: Big Things Come in Small Packages
A while back, our friends over at Shaving Stuff did a feature on shaving oils. "You should check these out," Russ said. "Think of all the shaving cream cans you're keeping out of landfills."
Well, we did think about it recently, when we came across a tiny bottle of Pacific Shaving Oil. According to the packaging, a tiny 2 ounce bottle contains up to 400 shaves. You apply just a few drops of the oil to your face for each shave, and go from there. According to the folks at Shaving Stuff,
Shaving oils work by applying a thin layer of lubricant to your skin, so the razor glides over the oil and can cut the hair without damaging the skin. This is similar to the way creams and gels work, just without all the extra junk which gets caught up in the razor. Think of it as a back to the basics shave. The fundamentals. You're only applying to your face the bare essentials of what's needed. It's a good philosophy.
We like Pacific Shaving Oil because it's made from all natural essential oils like Sunflower, Tangerine Peel, Grapefruit Peel, Avocado, and Kukui Nut Oil. Plus, for each bottle you purchase, Pacific Shaving plants a tree. Best of all, because you use so little of it for each shave, you won't be purchasing too many of those little bottles.
Speaking of which, about the landfills: Pacific Shaving Company estimates that sales of its shaving oil have already helped eliminate 18,000 pounds of shaving cream cans from landfills, enough to span five miles if laid end to end. If you haven't been shaving, it's almost enough to make you want to start!
Available at Pacific Shaving.
